Red Sox's Rusney Castillo collects two hits in Triple-A Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:46 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo went 2 for 4 in Tuesday's game with Triple-A Pawtucket, and manager John Farrell believes Castillo is starting to show better timing after dealing with an injury in April, WEEI.com reports.

"Looks like he’s starting to get a little bit better timing, just through some at-bats," Farrell said. "It’s been start and stop for him this year with spring training and then, unfortunately, the dive at Pawtucket, but a couple of hits here recently after the first 10 at-bats or so just trying to get in the flow of things, but there’s no restriction on games played or at-bats to be taken."

Farrell is looking for consistency and production from Castillo if he's to be in the mix at the major-league level. The outfielder has hit .259/.333/.296 in 27 at-bats with Pawtucket.


A's P Sean Doolittle (shoulder) to face hitters on Friday
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6:44 pm ET) Athletics closer Sean Doolittle is scheduled to face live hitters on Friday, according to the Bay Area News Group. 

Doolittle will throw to batters before Friday's game against the Mariners. He's recovering from a left rotator cuff injury. He's expected to return to the Athletics' bullpen sometime during the month of May. 


Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig to serve as DH in Rancho Cucamonga
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:42 pm ET) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is expected to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday, according to MLB.com. Puig, who is working his way back from hamstring, will see his first game action since April 24. He's not expected to play the field on Thursday, and will only serve as a designated hitter for now.

Red Sox's Shane Victorino to rehab in Double-A Friday, Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:39 pm ET) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino is scheduled to rehab with Double-A Portland Friday and Saturday before potentially joining the major-league team Monday in Oakland, WEEI.com reports.

"He’s going to get Friday and Saturday (in Portland) at minimum and if everything goes accordingly, there’s a chance he could, or the plan would be for him to join us in Oakland," manager John Farrell said Wednesday. "We’re projecting two left-handed starters against us in those first two games, that might be a continuation of his progression in terms of number of innings on the field, number of at-bats but Friday and Saturday will tell us a lot."

Victorino has hit .143/.302/.171 with two stolen bases in 35 at-bats.


Report: Nationals' Stephen Strasburg's shoulder issue was cramp
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:35 pm ET) The discomfort Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg experienced in his shoulder during Tuesday's game was just a cramp, a source told Fox Sports.

Strasburg was removed after throwing three innings during Tuesday's loss to the Marlins. He received an adjustment from a chiropractor Wednesday and was throwing on the field after Wednesday’s contest.


Athletics' Ben Zobrist has zero discomfort with knee
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:31 pm ET) Athletics second baseman Ben Zobrist has zero discomfort with his knee and his rehab is going well, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Zobrist has yet to resume hitting after undergoing knee surgery in late April, but if things continue to go well with his recovery, it's possible he's back with the team before the end of May. He has hit .240/.304/.400 with one home run, eight RBI and one stolen base in 50 at-bats.


With A's OF Coco Crisp back, Mark Canha could see time at 1B
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6:20 pm ET) With outfielder Coco Crisp healthy enough to return to baseball, the Athletics have a question as to what to do with Mark Canha, who's hitting .271 this season. 

One solution for the time being is to ease Crisp back in and rotate him with Canha in the outfield still, which is what manager Bob Melvin said via the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday. 

Another is to play Canha at first base so that he and Crisp can be in the lineup together. 

This season, Canha has played 20 games in the outfield, six at first base and one at third base. He's not in the lineup Wednesday as Crisp is in left field.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Weeks hasn't led off since April 15, while Bloomquist hasn't hit higher than seventh in any of his five starts.

The Mariners are underdogs (+134) on the road Wednesday, per VegasInsider.com.
